LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today appointed David Campbell to the State Teacher Tenure Commission.

The commission acts as a board of review for all teacher tenure cases appealed from the decision of a controlling board. 

"I am confident David will use his knowledge and expertise to help ensure Michigan's students are provided the best educators by fairly and efficiently analyzing and evaluating appealed cases of teacher tenure," Snyder said.

Campbell, of Charlotte, is the superintendent for Olivet Community Schools. He has 19 years of experience in a school administrator role and has served as a teacher, assistant principal and principal before becoming superintendent. Campbell also serves as chair of the Eaton County United Way and as a member of the executive council for the Michigan Association of School Administrators (MASA). He was named MASA's 2010 "Michigan Superintendent of the Year" and served as chair of the Professional Leadership Committee for MASA. Campbell earned a bachelor's degree in education from University of Wisconsin at Whitewater, a master's degree in educational administration from Illinois State University and received an honorary doctorate from Olivet College. 

Campbell will represent superintendents of schools and replace Patricia Ann Cole to fill the reminder of a term expiring Aug. 31, 2013. His appointment is not subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.
